Over-the-Top (OTT)

Over-the-Top (OTT) apps and services that are typically used over the Internet rather than over the networks of a traditional wireless, wireline, or cable operator.

How Bandwidth is Involved with OTT

Leading OTT voice and messaging mobile apps are using Bandwidth platforms to enable their virtual phone numbers to message with nearly every shortcode in the United States.

What Are the Benefits of Bandwidth OTT

Bandwidth equips customers with important carrier-grade phone number features to help them provide their users with fully compatible messaging services – normally only experienced with a traditional wireless carrier. This offers end users a better mobile app experience, but with the capabilities of a carrier-grade phone number.
